coincidence. joining us is president of florida league of women voters and jim greer, the former chairman of the republican party who's been very critical of what went on behind the scenes. first, thank you both for being here. >> glad to be here. >> jim, what can you tell our viewers with emmett "bucky" greer? >> he and his partner worked for me for a period of time when i was chairman. they are good at what they do. when you're looking for a lawyer that can write legislation and change the election laws, stand up potentially to a constitutional challenge, you reach out to people like bucky and his partner richard coats and they draft the law. they a they advise how it can get done and it's about keeping people from election day to win the republican election. >> keeping pop freople from get to election day? >> that's right. primarily down here in florida, reducing early voting days, put all of these obstacles in the way of democrats, minority voters from getting to the polls because down here in florida it's not just about the presidential election, it's about keeping power in the legis
. hope you enjoy that one. >>> let's go to long beach island, new jersey. cnn's jim clancy is there. jim, this area was devastated. the pictures show it. people still can't get to their homes. are you seeing crews show up there this morning, to clean up, to get the power back up? >> reporter: let me give you a real quick update. we've got heavy equipment moving. they will be plowing sand. remember, literally, thousands and thousands and thousands of tons of sand washed off the beach and swept across the island. they are going to be trying to clear roads today. we've seen contractors moving here almost non-stop. they are going to be trying to board up, to cross-brace a lot of the homes that are on pilings, you know, really in danger because all of the sand has washed away. the pilings are now very shallow. we've got health inspectors coming in as there's food that needs to be just cleared out of here. there's no refrigeration because there's no electricity. all of these fundamental problems trying to be addressed at the same time we've got the election coming up. there's some absentee bal
. >> jim, your favorite "star wars" film, please. >> it's definitely "empire strikes back." i'm chind ofkind of a chewie gu. >> who isn't? >> new jersey governor chris christie, new york city mayor michael bloomberg have come out as sort of the faces of this storm. is there a political impact here? it's been interesting, jim, to watch the relationship between chris christie and president obama and the relationship between mayer bloomberg and president obama. explain that a little bit. >> i find that christie to be most fascinating because he's going out there on all the talk shows really praising barack obama and how cooperative he's been with governor christie in new jersey. if you look at it from christ christie's perspective, that's what he should be doing. he's a governor who's going to need as much assistance and help in the aftermath of the storm as anyone. befriending the president, praising the president, bringing the president into his state and traveling the state, that's what you do when you're a governor. >> by the way, jim -- by the way, jim, not being cynical, i think yo
to cause an explosion? and abc's senior national correspondent jim avila set out to show us tonight. jim? >> reporter: so, diane, we're at the virginia beach, virginia, training center, i'm with a firefighter here who is going to show us what happens when a commercial gas meter breaks. the pilot light will be on. and look how fast it will take off. it's a frightening sound, and sight. natural gas burns fast and long. and after a natural disaster like hurricane sandy, where houses have been moved off their foundations, and whole blocks leveled from fire, it's a hazard at every turn. there is little clue, except a sulfur smell that is purposely added to the gas as a warning that danger lingers. so, what are we approaching here? you can kind of smell that rotten egg smell. >> right. we're simulating a broken gas line here, and that smell is the mercaptan that is injected into natural gas. >> reporter: okay, so when it goes up, it kind of goes up like your outside gas grill. it's hot. >> right. right now it's seeking an ignition source. ignition source can come from anything from a fuse on a
'm on a plane that's going to crash. >> stephanie: jim and i were going through a hailstorm in columbus. he thought it would be funny to start singing patsy cline songs. >> and buddy holly songs. >> stephanie: not funny jim. not really. there is a. >> eliot: of turbulence where it's not funny anymore. >> stephanie: not funny anymore. anyway can i say love my sexy liberals. amazing show. karl frisch opened up for us. >> did he really? >> stephanie: aisha tyler i'm sorry -- >> sexy lady. >> stephanie: that boogidy cheese happened. there's all of the one-liners that stick in your head forever. rob and earth wind and fire were discussing it at the airport. she was talking about meeting the president because she's an official obama surrogate. she said he smells like cookies and freedom. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: we've already gotten a million e-mails. cookies and freedom bitches. everything she says ends up on a t-shirt. smells like cookies and freedom. i think it is true. >> wow. according to michelle, he's got a
white men. let me play what senator jim webb said to chuck todd on this issue. take a listen. >> how in the name of the lord can the democratic party, the party of andrew jackson, only be getting 28 periods of time of the white male working class vote? from my perspective it's because of the interest group politics in the democratic party, that particular cultural group doesn't believe the democrats like that. >> are some white voters turned off by the democratic party? if so, where does the popular clinton factor come in? >> the president is there and will be in ohio for a reason. the president can bring into focus the idea that with the right economic policies and if you stick with it, as we did in 1995 and 1996, prosperity comes along. the real key numbers in ohio are look at the unemployment rate when the president came into office and where it is now. it's down i think nearly 50%. the auto bailout, some of the president's investments in manufacturing have really paid off in ohio, frankly, at the end of the day we can talk back and forth about different demographics. the presiden
friend christine romans. she joins me from washington. jim acosta from did he back to you, iowa, where mitt romney just landed. brianna keeler is in milwaukee, wisconsin, traveling with president obama. let's start here in ohio. the state has a very complex economy. here's some of what we've been hearing from voters on this trip. >> just a lot of depressed areas. a lot of joblessness. >> just looking at the unemployment rate, it's so scary to me. >> the last four years has not been very good for our small business. >> with the debt crisis, our country has, that burden is going to be on us in the future. >> all of the skills i had are obsolete now. >> i'm not up at the white house. i don't see rich people all the time. i see a lot of poor people. >> shut down, closed, reduced wages, ship the jobs overseas. we lost 55,000 factories. >> we're probably never have the things that we did 30, 40 years ago. >> balance the budget. we keep spending more and more. somewhere along the line it's going to come back and haunt us. >> they didn't plan for us. now we have to clean up the mess that they
.s. economic senator for the economist, jim, let me start with you been what's your take away from this report? what does it tell us about the status of the jobs market? >> well, it tells us that the jobs market is getting better. it's not getting better nearly fast enough for the 12 million merps who want to find work but can't. but the pace of the recovery appears to be picking up. this is good news. we're seeing increases in the creation rate for private sector employment. we're seeing some sectors, like housing and construction starting to come back that are adding more jobs. these are very good things and signs that, while we're not anywhere close to where we need to be yet, maybe the economy really is starting to get back into that more green zone than a red zone. >> and, jim, one gray cloud in the economic report, and it is frankly what the republicans are poundsing, is what the republicans call the real unemployment rate, 14.6 of% and it includes, as you know, people who have settled for part-time work, who have stopped looking for work altogether. what can you tell us about that rate

rally in new hampshire, and now he is headed the iowa. our national political correspondent jim acosta was there in portsmouth, new hampshire. >> reporter: mitt romney has kicked off his swing state blitz in this final weekend of the presidential campaign starting the day in new hampshire and then heading next to iowa and colorado. we're hearing the gop nominee touch on some themes that he's been bringing up quite a bit in the last couple of days, saying he is the candidate of what he calls real change. he's also going through his five-point economic plan to get the country back on track, talking about ideas like cutting the deficit, tapping into domestic energy resources and fixing the nation's public school system. but one thing that he has been trying to zero in on in this final stretch of the campaign, he's been going after the president's mantel, being a post-partisan president. in the words of mitt romney, the president has been what he calls the most partisan. here's what he had to say. >> yesterday, the president said something you might have heard by now that i think surprised

-- >> jim clancy is also with cnn. jim is in that area right now. jim, is there a sense that the danger has passed? >> reporter: there's a sense that they faced down the destruction that has been caused. they've now seen those images that you showed, you saw the faces of those evacuees, what they've been through. there are still dangers looming out there, a long way to go. the gas lines you were talking about are still a challenge in some areas. some residents challenging why they haven't been cut off much earlier. and there's hopes that that can be done today. not as easy as it sounds. gaining access to where they can cut off these lines still will leave some of those lines pressurized. there's still a potential threat there. of course, before they can reenergize any of the electric lines in some of these communities, they have to ensure that job is done, carol. otherwise, it could ignite new fires. there's one of the major risks that remains. there are still some people that are holding out, some elderly with their pets, but they're about to give it up. there's no electricity. there's no
or a businessman? good point. jim irwin on the political side tweeting will hurricane sandy make for paper ballots rather than electronic in states where the power is down? the idea of what we're going to do about election day is starting to loom. that's going to be, i think the next big thing. >> bill: it is because the storm is going to be around for so long and the focus immediately after -- let's say by today right. maybe in parts of jersey and delaware and even here in the d.c. area, it will be clean up rather than more storm. we're not dealing with storm so much as cleanup. that will take a couple of days. >> six and a half million people are without power. six and a half million people are without power and we're a week away from an election. >> bill: charles calling from tampa, florida. hey, charles. >> caller: good morning, bill. i just want to -- fema sent trailers down here years ago to be used. fema said you have to take them. florida wanted to give them back to fema to be used. fema said no. they stay where th
. but service is limited and the city faces another day of serious transportation trouble. jim axelrod is at the tip of lower manhattan outside the staten island ferry terminal. good morning, jim. >> reporter: good morning. big step for new yorkers and a psychological boost, to at least have partial subway service restored and to ease some congestion on the roads. there won't be any subway trains coming in and out of here. not today, not tomorrow. not for a while, it would seem. three days after superstorm sandy swept through new york, the city's road to recovery is literally gridlocked. >> traffic is terrible, man. takes 45 minutes just for four block blocks. it's horrible. >> reporter: commuters turned manhattan streets into parking lots. a telling sign of just how badly the city needs its mass transit system back. >> i am declaring a transportation emergency. >> reporter: this morning 14 out of 23 subway lines will begin operating. but none will be able to run below 34th street in manhattan and into brooklyn. multiple tunnels and stations in that area remain flooded with sea water.
're sfeng pen so much time in ohio. let's take a view right now from the ground level. jim acosta is with the romney campaign in north canton, ohio. brian brianna keilar is at the white house. is the romney campaign showing any signs of concern over their ability to win ohio? >> i just talked to a senior romney advisor who said no, they are going to win ohio, but he did say this race in this state is going to come down to independents. whoever wins independents in the words of this romney advisor, that candidate is going to win ohio. now, there's a little bit of spin in that because if you look at recent polling like an abc news/"washington post" poll that came out yesterday, governor romney is doing well among independent voters so it makes sense they would be talking about that advantage right now. at the same time, there are signs that yes, the romney campaign is concerned about this state and talking a little bit about what john king was mentioning a few moments ago about the auto bailout, we heard one of romney's top surrogates, rob portman, defend mitt romney's stance on the
's impact on the race and the economy with chuck todd and cnbc's jim cramer just ahead. >> a quick note for you. we're sad to say that due to sandy we will not be having our halloween celebration on the plaza tomorrow, so if you were planning to join us out here in costume, we want you to stay home, stay safe. we will get that done at some other point. things are more important. >> they are indeed. you'll have to put the ponte hose away for another year. get the latest on the storm, the record flooding we've seen in lower manhattan. let's get to natalie morales in battery park city in the southern tip of mat hannan. natalie, good morning to you again. >> reporter: good morning to you, savannah, once again. we're fully now beginning to realize the devastation of sandy. as you have mentioned in the reporting, at least 16 deaths total being blamed on this storm. downtown here in lower manhattan, can you see the waters have receded. at the height of the storm though here in battery park there was a storm surge of 13 feet. that is a record-breaker here in new york city. at least 6 million pe
events in order to monitor recovery efforts. in an e-mail to supporters, campaign manager jim messina asked for donations not for the campaign, but for the american red cross stating "soon enough we'll get back to work on the most campaign of our lifetime. but the most important thing at this moment is you and your loved ones are safe and the rest of us do what we can to speed the recovery." the romney campaign, on the other hand, found themselves struggling to find the right tone. in an effort to avoid seeming insensitive to the millions of americans affected by the storm, the romney camp canceled appearances on monday and tuesday but rebranded others as storm relief events. senator john mccain spoke on behalf of governor romney at an event in ohio today and apparently missed the memo about putting politics aside. mccain slammed the president's handling of the the attack on the american consulate in libya. >> this president is either engaged in a massive cover-up deceiving the american people, or he is so grossly incompetent that he's not qualified to be commander in chief of our arm
democrats call this a flat out lie, and we did a little fact checking on both. jim angle live in washington with the facts. hey, jim. >> reporter: hello, megyn. jeep production in ohio has turned into one of the nastyist and perhaps misinformed debates of the season. back in late october bloomberg ran a store row saying that fiat the owner of chrysler plans to return jeep output to china and may eventually make all of its mod tphels that country according to the head of both automakers operations in the region. now governor romney mentioned that story in a speech later in ohio, but later learned it was incorrect. democrats and bailed out automakers rushed to say that jeep was not going to take jobs from ohio, but rather just open up a production line in china, which a later romney ad accurately repeated. listen. >> obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> reporter: but democrats cried foul and even fact checkers said while it was technically accurate, it was misleading. t
has eased restrictions on foreign flag oil tankers. jim cantore has more for us on this problem. >> hey, tamron. this is what i would call an orderly gas line, even though it's packed, it's orderly he. people are lined up to each pump, and they filled the tanks with tangers that came in here. this is a nice supply of gas here at the vince lombardi truck stop. back towards the west, you can see here this gentleman, this police officer is actually directing traffic coming in from the exit into which line they should get in. as we show you where that line is, it travels all the way back up around to the turnpike. last night we understand this line was all the way out into the turnpike, which creates a dangerous situation there. so this is pretty good. you have about an hour and a half wait to the end of the line so you're able to get gas. there's no limits here on how much to get. they ask everybody to be respectful of everybody else. if you have five five-gallon tanks strapped to your roof, that won't make a lot of people happy. you have 50% of all the gas stations out there that
's jim cramer. >>> let us start, though, with the record flooding we've seen down in lower manhattan. natalie morales is down in battery park city. natalie, good morning to you. >> reporter: and good morning to you, matt. we are fortunate that those waters have receded down here in the lower manhattan area, but obviously flooding is an ongoing concern. just to bring you up-to-date right now, nbc news has confirmed 18 deaths have now been blamed on sandy. the situation still not safe, according to officials. as you see, bands of rain and wind still whipping us around, so there's still many areas that are waterlogged right now. flooding, the ongoing concern in coastal, new jersey, which really bore the brunt of the storm. new jersey governor chris christie saying new jersey was the worst hit. the devastation along the jersey coastline he called unthinkable. more than seven million still are without power. all up and along the eastern seaboard. a quarter of the entire state of new jersey is without power. that is more than two million people. hundreds of thousands, as you know, here in
is the new direction? one prominent local citizen isn't tipping his hand. we met green bay mayor jim schmitt at a.l.s. hamburger shop. i noticed you're not endorsing either candidate. why's that? >> no. you what... what? look, i'm the mayor. i know who i want to be mayor, but when it comes to... >> reporter: you feel good about that one! >> i feel pretty good about that endorsement. >> reporter: mayor schmitt may be the smartest politician around. with a constituency fiercely divided and independent, he directed us to his own house a few blocks away. there we found one sign for a democratic state assembly candidate and another for a republican running for the state senate. >> ifill: president obama and mitt romney rescheduled their wisconsin events for later this week. want to examine the fallout no matter who wins? you can explore every electoral college scenario in our vote 2012 map center. >> woodruff: is an alert from a drug-sniffing dog enough to justify police searching a home or a car? that's the question the supreme court explored today in two cases. marcia coyle of the "national law
what it meant to you, but my brother jim filled me in today. the boardwalk is gone down there where grace kelly lived, all that historic stuff down there. just gone. all the way down to the south everything's flooded. it's amazing how much damage. but luckily, as i think was wonderful the way your former colleague, actually governor christie said today, not much loss of life. this is all about stuff that can be replaced. >> right, and he's right. it can be replaced if we understand that government has a role in our lives. government is important in our lives, and government has to be the key factor in helping that effort, that recovery effort. >> well, let's talk about that effort. let me go right now to david corn who is joining me. it seems to me that fema, working on that with the carter administration, there was a judgment made way back when in the '70s that government needs to be united. one focus by one man or woman, this guy, fugate's got to be good. you need like a baseball team, you need a manager, somebody to call the shots. >> and we see with more extreme weather happenin
